I received my first rejection today from an agent I queried for my first novel. I had expected to be really crushed by that, but it wasn’t bad at all — a minor disappointment rather than a knife to the heart. It probably helps that I’m focused on another project right now so I don’t need to obsess over that one.
I made more progress with the editing re-read on my second novel. I’m pretty happy that I’m still not running into any major issues. I want to rework the “magic system” in the setting, but so far the only impact that will have will be localized changes to descriptions of magic stuff happening.
